ReFrame and IMDbPro Recognize Gender-Balanced TV Programs including “GLOW,” “Insecure,” “Jane the Virgin,” “The Handmaid’s Tale,” “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” and “This Is Us”

Los Angeles, CA — ReFrame™ (ReFrameProject.org), a coalition of industry professionals and partner companies founded by Women In Film and Sundance Institute—whose mission is to increase the number of women of all backgrounds working in film, TV and media—and IMDbPro (imdbpro.com)—the essential information resource for the entertainment industry—announced today the 62 TV and streaming series that have earned the first-ever ReFrame Stamp for Television. Based on an open submission call launched on September 26, 2018 to consider the 364 scripted television programs that aired June 1, 2017 – May 31, 2018 (per the Emmys calendar), the inaugural round of recipients includes all five of Shonda Rhimes’s Shondaland shows, “Broad City” (Comedy Central), “Empire” (Fox), “GLOW” (Netflix), “Insecure” (HBO), Jane the Virgin (The CW), “The Handmaid’s Tale” (Hulu), “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” (Amazon Prime Video) and “This Is Us” (NBC) (see full list below).

The ReFrame Stamp serves as a mark of distinction for film and television projects that have demonstrated success in gender-balanced hiring based on criteria developed by ReFrame in consultation with ReFrame Ambassadors (complete list below), producers and other industry experts. Stamps are awarded to productions that hire female-identifying people in four out of eight critical areas of their production, including: writer, director, showrunner, producer, lead, season regulars, department heads and crew. Additional points are awarded to content that has women of color in key positions. The criteria are iterative and will change over time as the industry evolves. For more information or to apply for the ReFrame Stamp, please visit ReFrameProject.org/tvstamp.

Sundance Institute Piloting Direct Individual Support for Mediamakers Through the Sundance Institute | Humanities Sustainability Fellowship

Long before the COVID-19 pandemic upended life in general, and halted production and distribution for many creatives, the nonfiction field was plagued by issues of sustainability. For several years, sustainability has been an urgent and vigorous topic of study, debate, and organizing, as more and more filmmakers find it difficult, if not impossible, to make a living solely on the basis of their creative work. 

In Memoriam: Diane Weyermann (1955–2021)

A singular force within the documentary film world with a global reach, Diane Weyermann passed away at age 66 after battling cancer. Over the course of her 30-year career as a funder and an executive, her work elevated the documentary form and expanded its cultural impact.
